    I say the jobmail team helped me on numerous occasions bcoz I’ve been to four interviews in cape town already as I don’t hesitate to buy R60 BIS for my blackberry so I have access to jobmail daily as they send jobs three times a day for me to browse my intended job whilst awaiting replies from attended interviews.

      No, help on my side. Job Mail did not help me to find a job in PTA are still looking.

      • job-admin says:

        Hi Elize – Hang in there. Don’t lose hope. There are many South Africans who don’t have jobs, the market is volatile. Make sure that your CV is at 100%. Apply for many positions and if no-one contacts you back, follow up with them. Check on the status of your applications. The key is to be pro-active in your job hunt. Good luck with your journey ahead.

    I have been with Job Mail since 2005 when I started college. I have applied for many positions via Job Mail and have been to a few interviews.

    This year as I was about to give up in applying for employment I got an Alert about my matching job criteria, I applied and within two days I was called for an interview. I got the job after 3 interviews, even thou it is not a permanent position, they are giving me a chance to study further and there is a good chance for me to become permanent next year after finishing my course.

    Thank you Job Mail for your help in finding perfect jobs for all of us.

  32. Jurie says:

    Jobhunting can be such a tedious task, being in recruitment myself it was quite different to be on the other side of the interview table for a change. I was unemployed for 9 months after having to close my very own recruitment business and suddenly the tables were turned. I found myself in quite a tough spot, and then a beacon of hope, Jobmail which allowed me to browse online and then also buy the print edition every fortnight (sometimes its nice to sit with your red pen and encircle all the ads like in the movies :)). Before I knew it I had an interview lined up for almost every day of the week, as employers were also able to see my CV online. I had found a great employer eventually and it is all thanks to Jobmail. Thank you for your service to the South African citizen Jobmail, you guys are awesome! 🙂
